this poem is from the heart, her own experiences, and even though i don't
fully understand it, i get where she is coming from and why she is insecure
about her relationship.

Love is a risk. Do we dare to let go of our "dollies"-- our many
distractions that tell us we don't need it-- those things that we feel sure
can't hurt us; will always be there for us, and that we can control. Maybe
Emily was telling us that "love" is mere folly and really you can only
count on your self. This is totaly about romantic love which is an illusion
and not real.

I like this poem. It is that age old question: Do you really love me? It
makes her vulnerable.

Emily Dickinson, in my opoinion, was a mastere of the english language.
Only one that has been through so much greef could understand the truth
behind society's true nature.

This poem was very confusing to me. It didn't make any sense. Emily is a
stupid poet, and i am glad she is dead. I like Charles DICKinson. Now, he
puts the Dick in DICKinson. My name is Ben Dover, and by the way I am a
woman on the inside.

Eventhrough I don't know what she saying. She is real
deep with her poems.
